You have to approve the skills you are endorsed for, anyway (at least, the way I have it set up). If someone endorses you for a new skill, it doesn't appear on your profile until you accept the endorsement.

I would think the best way to avoid the RPC minefield is to draft a prominently displayed disclaimer in the profile setting forth the disavowal of the endorsement. As a legal doc preparer, my home state bar is absolutely terrified of competition from anyone who can competently prepare/file legal docs w/o a license to practice law and as such, won't even let us call ourselves by our rightful designation of paralegal earned via education/certification unless employed by an atty. I am compelled by the Biz & Professions Code to repeatedly remind consumers via all communications that I am not an atty. or else face an allegation of UPL -unauthorized practice of law.

Fortunately, you can disable Endorsements. Navigate to "Edit Profile," and scroll to the Skills and Expertise section. Click the Edit button and click the tab that says "Manage Endorsements." Select the drop-down menu beside it and click "No, do not show my endorsements."

If you thought consumerization killed UC, think again: 70% of our 488 respondents have or plan to put systems in place. Of those, 34% will roll UC out to 76% or more of their user base. And there’s some good news for UCaaS providers.
